Great book and great reading
Thank you to DSayers and gloriana for this reading. It was both humorous and touching. Both of them did excellently well with the voices of the various characters involved. It made me want to learn more about history so that I would know the context of the many historical events that were referenced. It's a shame this book isn't longer, I'd have enjoyed hearing much more from the author and the readers.
